Sustainable Youth-Driven Local Innovation Incubators;
"We'll make it or break it at the local level." Former FCC Chairman Julius Genochowski
We need to mobilize our digital youth, provide incentives for innovation, and
to effectively teach the innovation process to all generations of entrepreneurs.

For the first time in history, there are more entrepreneurs over the age of 50, than under the age of 50!
Two new proposals for Alaskan village social innovations with tech and social media to produce scalable measurable outcomes:

Alaskan Native Innovation Incubators Proposal to the Blackstone Foundation, serving as a model for Montana, too.

This Healthy Families Proposal relates to the 25 million children who qualify for free lunches, and is relevant to the millions of one parent households.
The focus on use of Ipads for home-based early childhood development and entry-level digital entrepreneurship for low-income families.

Elder's Don't Want to Listen? Alaskan Native elders issues and opportunities;


A Top Ten for CyberSeniors:  What is Broadband and What's in it for me?

10. Fingertip access to the world's knowledge base for self-directed education and entertainment.
      Find the best info. on your greatest interests, and discover new interests.

9. Eventually everyone and everything will be interconnected, and many essential services may only be available online.
   You need to see what's available to you now, health info, government services, and much more.

8. A community's GPA (Good People Acting) is the number of locals helping others match specific needs with available
    resources as a mutual support social network. If we all share what we know, we'll all have access to all our knowledge.
    You need to see how you can help others, and how others can help you.

7. Independent living can be dramatically extended via 2 way video Telecare and other services, and the potential exists
    for flextime telecare employment from the social safety of your residence; Elders helping Elders. 
    Homebound elders can tap a button and be face-to-face with anyone, anywhere, anytime, at no cost. Try it, you'll like it!

6. Everyone can be both learner and teacher using easy to learn web-based tools which allow anyone the opportunity to
    both learn and teach; anything, anywhere, anyone, anytime. Enjoy the satisfaction of sharing “the love of learning”
     by sharing what you know, and/or can learn along with others.

5. Whatever you put online can be an enduring contribution to the welfare of others; leave your legacy via digital storytelling,
    collected useful content, sharing your wisdom of years, and modeling how to encourage the self-directed learning of others.
    Calling all Citizen Professors!

4. Tom Brokaw had a TV special on Baby boomers and asked a panel, “Has your generation accomplished what you thought it would?”

    The answer came back “Not Yet.”
: The Story of History's Wealthiest and Most Influential - CNBC

3. One third of seniors live alone. Seniors dating websites are very popular. With a $20 webcam you can enjoy meeting
    new people via 2 way video using www.skype.com (and enjoy face time with friends, family and grandchildren, for free.)

2. Seniors are the fastest growing group on the web, particularly with social media, where you can join communities of interest,
    find both old friends and make new ones.  The new web-based tools are easier to learn and more powerful than ever!

1.  We all need encouragement and broadband gives us the opportunity to help others maintain a positive attitude toward life; sharing good humor, and life-affirming beauty in photos, videos, stories and evolving new media.

Don Samuelson's Facebook101 for seniors



Businesses serving seniors could create millions of jobs; seniors serving seniors via telecare;

The Ipad telemonitoring device at http://doublerobotics.com relates to opportunities for seniors
to tele-monitor seniors as a home-based business, as supported by the short NBC News segment immediately below.

Now that our Montana Governor has signed legislation to allow Medicaid reimbursement for telemedicine,
the many jobs for seniors helping seniors needs to be modeled, ideally as a certification program. Think "new markets and revenue sources.”

Montana Healthcare Ins. companies to cover telemedicine.

The FDA cites industry estimates that 500 million smartphone users worldwide will use some type of health app by 2015.

Here’s the smartphone technology that alerts a doctor when patients are headed for trouble.

Senator Baucus has an I.T. eco-dev summit in Butte Sept. 16th, noting health I.T. is where most new jobs
will be coming from; 28% of new jobs. If we could get Gigabit speeds and model new H.I.T. job creation,
Dillon could make a name for itself as an intentionally innovative community.
The potential is to create HIT businesses that can serve anyone, anywhere, anytime, while employing Montanans specifically.

Summit Article: http://www.flatheadbeacon.com/articles/article/baucus_promotes_economic_summit_other_remaining_priorities/33239/

Below is an article on Butte as the hub for Giga, and Terapop connectivity. I believe a 360 high speed line goes through Dillon?
Who needs Google? There's now a Tera-POP in rural northwest Montana.

Dillon’s Future:
I would like to revisit the current status of opportunities to connect Dillon's anchor institutions with major opportunities on multiple fronts.

I'm familiar with USUCAN, US Ignite, and multiple Gigabit cities initiatives. The FCC commissioner has set as a goal, at least one gigabit city in each state by 2015.

I'm on the board of the rural telecom congress, and am on the FCC connect2compete.org curriculum committee.

Missoula is looking hard at connecting with the Gigapop in Butte:
Extreme broadband Internet could boost Missoula businesses

Dillon’s one minute video application to become a Google Fiber city
Dillon video 

Over 10 years ago Dillon was on the front page of Silicon Valley's newspaper, the San Jose Mercury news,
and here's a link to that article and a bit of Dillon's online history: http://lone-eagles.com/dillon.htm 

My history with Western's Big Sky Telegraph is at http://lone-eagles.com/history.htm 
I look forward to discussing the next chapter of local innovation Monday 4pm with your team.

17+ pages of Sample Links for Seniors for Future Review


It is vitally important to realize anyone can google up hundreds of links for seniors within minutes, and share those they find most valuable via their own free websites, wikis, blogs, and on and on. That anyone can create their own clearinghouse this easily means thousands have already done so. This is intrinsically satisfying; to be able to create value evaluating and organizing content from diverse sources, and should be part of all digital literacy training, particularly the most basic training.


Note that many of these links below are to whole directories, not just individual links.


Info-Gathering Tips:
Based on 20 years info-gathering the best of the best by topic, there are some tricks.

Know others have already created looong listings of great resources by topic, search them out using search phrases “top ten” “directory”, “resources” “lessons or tutorials or courses” etc. And always check the “other resources” at each site. If they don’t have rich listings of at least some of the great free resources you know exists online in profusion, then they are likely a commercial site interested more in your money than in helping people.


Try these search phrases at Google.com or any search engine to appreciate the volume of existing resources for seniors

The delivery and visuals would be an important dynamic to make these top ten reasons truly compelling, but here's a quick first effort.  We learn best hands-on, so short first positive experiences with each of these as an alternative digital literacy curriculum or as a pre-12 week course experience might be something to pilot  and assess feedback.  The more humor and compelling visuals you can infuse into this, the better it will be - as your challenge for your clients to "one-up" your first effort.  Everyone can add value to their discoveries by collecting their best of the best and posting them as webtours or similar new media resources to save others time and excite interest.

Book: The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption
View this one minute video and see the Info-diet book as something to talk about.
Here's a one minute video related to info-diets
<http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/brainpickings/rss/~3/kP0DRva7BUo/>via <http://www.brainpickings.org>Brain Pickings by Maria Popova on 1/19/12
Why “information overload” is the wrong lens on the issue, or what sugar and fat have to do with Hollywood.

“You are a mashup of what you let into your life,” artist Austin Kleon recently <http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2011/09/27/steal-like-an-artist-austin-kleon/>proclaimed. This encapsulates the founding philosophy behind Brain Pickings — a filtration mechanism that lets into your life things that are interesting, meaningful, creatively and intellectually stimulating, memorable. Naturally, I was thrilled for the release of Clay Johnson’s intelligent manifesto for optimizing the 11 hours we spend consuming information on any given day (a number that, for some of us, might be <http://www.theatlanticwire.com/business/2011/07/maria-popova-what-i-read/39328/>  frighteningly higher) in a way that serves our intellectual, creative, and psychological well-being.


Jim Tobias: www.inclusive.com
Here are some of the materials I've produced:






Attached are some Flash animations from my online courses; there are more

than 100 modules like these, for different topics, most of which are about

usability and accessibility, aimed at designers and engineers.


None of these would be useful for training low-income seniors about the

Internet, of course. My point is that we may want to create such materials

for that purpose, and I've done a lot of that, efficiently and effectively.

I have a lot of experience using exciting media to make the same point that

a static document, slide, or website can -- it simply works better, and it's

evident to everyone.

BTW -- here's a great example of exciting media to convey a complex idea

from a 'boring' domain, on world economic development statistics:

from mary ann van cura to All Participants:

for a few years, local organizations have supported collaboration and sharing of best practices via staff time to participate in the
Technology Literacy Collaborative,
http://tlc-mn.org  we are developing relationships across sectors without a budget at the moment, with some staff time contributions, and a local foundation-funded website (site improvements to come)

from Jennifer Peterson to All Participants:

Stay in touch through Crossroads: http://www.webjunction.org/crossroads


Our soon to be funded research might include:

1. Examples of the best existing videos related to A. relevance, B. training basics (how-to) C. topical new things that are easy to learn.

2. Examples of the best commercial alternatives, Steve's Webwise, Oates, and others, for comparative review I.E. Cost/Value/Results

3. What new tools encourage local folks to create fun, social learning opportunities for each other, including but not limited to videos.


The nature of social media is sharing what's new, so establishing a scheduled flow of new mini-lessons, short "how to" apps, etc., appears to be what's proving to be popular. Dozens of examples exist, from the free app screenchomp (see screenchomp.com ) to the Ipad explaineverything app (free and like Jing) - which allow anyone to talk and doodle to create a video, or talk and use any ipad application to explain its use to others via a video.
